Description

With the oil and gas industry facing new challenges—deeper offshore installations, more unconventional oil and gas transporting through pipelines, and refinery equipment processing these opportunity feedstocks--new corrosion challenges are appearing, and the oil and gas industry’s infrastructure is only as good as the quality of protection provided and maintained. Essentials of Coating, Painting, and Linings for the Oil, Gas, and Petrochemical Industries is the first guide of its kind to directly deliver the necessary information to prevent and control corrosion for the components on the offshore rig, pipelines underground and petrochemical equipment. Written as a companion to Cathodic Corrosion Protection Systems, this must-have training tool supplies the oil and gas engineer, inspector and manager with the full picture of corrosion prevention methods specifically catered for oil and gas services. Packed with real world case studies, critical qualifications, inspection criteria, suggested procedure tests, and application methods, Essentials of Coating, Painting, and Linings for the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Industries is a required straightforward reference for any oil and gas engineer and manager.

Key Features

  • Understand how to select, prime and apply the right coating system for various oil and gas equipment and pipelines – both upstream and downstream
  • Train personnel with listed requirements, evaluation material and preparation guides, including important environmental compliance considerations
  • Improve the quality of your equipment, refinery and pipeline with information on repair and rejection principles

Readership

Oil and Gas Engineers, Corrosion Engineers, Operation Managers, Production Directors and Managers, Refinery Managers, Safety Inspectors, Oil and Gas Consultants, Chemical Engineers, Risk Managers, and Post-Graduate Students in Petroleum and Safety Engineering

Reviews

"Extensively illustrated and comprising 830 pages the book provides detailed guidance on the selection and application of coatings and linings and is described as a ‘must-have’ training tool."--Plastics Information Direct, January 21, 2015

"This book is a great contribution to the corrosion literature in the crucial area of the coating, painting and lining in the oil and gas industries. It offers a full coverage of key topics in the corrosion protection with special focus on oil and gas industries, as well as covering some topics rarely discussed and hard to find in the literature. The book provides an excellent access to a number of design guidelines and operating procedures, which makes it a standalone reference for coating, painting and lining in the oil and gas industries and an excellent textbook for graduate programs on this subject. The complex details of the coating, painting and lining in the oil and gas industries are fully addressed in a straightforward fashion that makes the book appealing to all parties who are involved in the oil and gas corrosion protection projects". -- Dr. S. R. Gomari, Teesside University, United Kingdom
